An amusement park provides the opportunity to study oscillatory systems and the variables associated with mechanical oscillation. After making observations at the park, a team heads back to the lab and creates experiments based on their observations. Part of Invisible Science and Technology Surrounding Series.
Demonstrates how a heart actually functions as two pumps in one. Scenes at an amusement park show the effects of activity on the heart. Scenes of the internal heart are matched with still drawings and animations that depict the heart's valves, muscle, and pacemaker. The effects of diet and exercise on the heart are mentioned.
Ants play important roles in many ecosystems, and a team of scientists are surveying ant populations in Gorongosa Park. Leading the study is Leeanne Alonso, she is cataloging the different species of ants in Gorongosa National Park and establishing a species census to monitor the ongoing recovery of the park.
Jack and Colton make their way to Mount St. Helens. Along their journey, they explore a hidden waterfall and old lava tubes. Their adventure ends with a climb up the volcano. Part of the "Rock the Park" series.
Gorongosa National Park was once famous for its lion population. However, during Mozambique’s struggle for independence and subsequent civil war, the park’s iconic wildlife was slaughtered. In 2008, a massive ecosystem restoration project began. Today, many animals are bouncing back in large numbers, but it is unclear if the lions are also making a strong recovery. Paola Bouley heads the “Gorongosa Lion Project,” an effort to document the lions’ response to the park’s restoration and identify any factors that may be limiting their recovery.
Join Joel and the Curiosity Quest crew as they get up close and personal with the variety of animals at Moonridge Animal Park in Big Bear, California. Meet deer, wolves, birds and other animals including a rare look at a snow leopard. Part of the Curiosity Quest Series.
In this episode, host Jeff Corwin travels to the protected beaches of California to observe elephant seals. Later, he explores the pristine coastal habitats of Año Nuevo State Park and discovers one of the most endangered creatures in North America. Part of the "Ocean Mysteries" series.
Host Jessica Robertson visits Montana and gathers questions from individuals visiting Glacier National Park. They want to know how climate change is impacting glaciers. Scientists from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) provide the answers and information on how to learn more about climate change.
This episode features stories on an innovative surf park in the North Wales countryside and an invention aimed at stopping police chases. Host Mo Rocca also highlights the history of flight starting with the Wright Brothers and finishing with the modern technologies of space. Part of "The Henry Ford Innovation Nation With Mo Rocca" series.
There are 3900 caves in America's National Park System, and 21 are open to the public. Visits Mammoth Cave, Carlsbad Caverns, and the lava tube caves on Hawaii. Tours each and describes their unique features and formations. Emphasizes the delicate natural balance that exists in all caves.
In this series, explorers travel the diverse and natural sanctuaries of the Gulf of California. Each episode highlights the fauna and flora of this region. Some of the locations visited include Revillagigedo Islands, the Espíritu Santo (Holy Spirit) National Park, and Cape Pulmo. Part of the "Inside the Sea" series.
An important part of the conservation effort in Gorongosa National Park is to identify the species living in the park to ensure their protection and monitor their recovery. Every year, teams of scientists conduct biodiversity surveys in different areas of the park. Piotr Naskrecki leads a survey project in a particularly remote area, the limestone gorges of the Cheringoma Plateau, to study the bat population.
Elizabeth Hadly has been studying biodiversity in Yellowstone National Park for 30 years. Accompanied by biologist Sean Carroll, she demonstrates different ways in which climate change is impacting the park’s ecosystems. Bark beetles are surviving the winter at higher elevations and killing a large number of white-bark pine trees, disrupting the food web that includes squirrels and grizzly bears. Climate change is also causing ponds to dry up, reducing the pond habitat and decimating the local amphibian population. Although the park provides protected environments for animals, it is not immune from global threats like climate change.
California’s Pinnacles National Monument is America’s newest National Park. The monument gets its name from its spires and rock formations. It is also home to the California condor, rare chaparral vegetation and carpets of wildflowers.
Where is nature in the middle of a ctiy made of buildings, streets, cars, and many people? Eight-year-old Lee takes a tour of his neighborhood, pointing out the various places plants and animals are found. He notes that weather is nature too, and certainly impacts his community. Nature is all around . . . just look!
North America is continually reinventing itself. Experts discuss the various geographic landforms of the continent. They also touch on the active tectonic forces of the San Andreas Fault and the potentially hazardous dormant volcano in Yellowstone National Park. Part of the "Voyage of the Continents" series.
Fieldwork is a critical part of geography, and involves a range of techniques. Two young commandos are on a fieldwork mission to research and report on the human impact in two geographical regions: one urban and one within a national park. Along the way they learn about preparation, collecting primary and secondary data, equipment, note taking, photographic recording, surveying and interviewing, and presenting findings. They also talk to park rangers who work in both areas and ultimately come to understand the importance of accurate, well-prepared fieldwork.
For over a century, tens of millions of visitors have marveled at the natural beauty of Yellowstone National Park, home to the largest concentration of geysers in the world, including the iconic Old Faithful. Visitors may not realize it, but Yellowstone is situated directly above one of the largest volcanic systems on Earth-a supervolcano. For the past two million years, this volcano has erupted roughly every 600,000 years. The last major eruption, which produced a caldera that stretches over 1,500 square miles across the park-two-thirds the size of Prince Edward Island-occurred 640,000 years ago. So, is it overdue for another eruption?
One-third of Costa Rica's land is designated as national parks. One park is home to the capuchin, howler, and spider monkeys, each an endangered species. The three groups have distinct similarities and differences in their habitats, diets, characteristics, and social structures. As scientists study the roles and functions of the female monkeys, they remain fascinated by these animals that are so similar to humans. NOTE: One brief mating scene.
A boy takes his two pets-a dog and a frog-to the park. While the boy is busy chasing his dog, the frog takes the opportunity to hop out of its basket and explore. Its first adventure is a ride in a toy truck that's being pulled by a little girl. The boy and dog hunt for the frog. Meanwhile, the frog joins the act of a street magician, hides in a picnic basket, takes a ride in a toy motorboat, and jumps into a baby's carriage. The baby's mother summons the park police, but the boy and dog rescue their amphibian friend just in time. Based on a book by Mercer Mayer.
